Speaking of a Sea of Transportation Woes…..

by jhwygirl

KPAX reported tonight that the recent Envision Missoula transportation planning meetings suffered a glitch in the nifty hand-held computer devices which collected data from the participants at the Wednesday evening session.

Because of that glich – the consultant’s computer crashed, loosing the collected data – Mike Kress, Senior Transportation Planner, said that another meeting will be held to do exactly what they were trying to do – which is collect information from Missoula’s citizens on their thoughts of how the area’s transportation system should tackle our transportation and growth needs in the future.

{sigh} I know those planners have worked very hard at doing their best to make the community aware of its meetings and of gathering as much community and public input into the planning process. If only all of our planning processes were as diligently transparent.

Kress said he expected the meetings to be held in 2 to 3 weeks.

    I was at that meeting, and the consultant said, at the time, that he recovered the data. I saw it on the screen. What gives?

  2. Per Mirtha Becerra at OPG: it was actually the Thursday afternoon Envision Summit data that has been lost… And MCAT did not film that session.

    Good afternoon!

    Our consultant thought he had recovered the data, but the file is corrupted and won’t open. They have sent the file to a variety of forensic tech types so we still have hope.

    When we found out that we don’t have the data (except for the answers to the last 8 questions) we decided to schedule another meeting. Everyone is invited and there will be lots of publicity once we have a date/time/place nailed down.

    We will be emailing/mailing an invitation to everyone who signed in at the February 14 meeting. They will have the option of attending the new meeting or filling out the survey and sending it back it they would rather.

    Thanks for the kind words about our process. Our goal is to get as much community input as possible.
